If you’re swapping a K24 into your NA Miata (1990-1997) and would like to retain your factory hood, our new modified valve cover is a must.
Before we built these covers, either an aftermarket hood was needed, or a small cutout had to be made in the hood skin. With this cover, your K24 will fit under the stock hood skin with some trimming of the hood skeleton, but the externally the hood will remain intact, leaving you with the same factory look as before.
Our valve covers begin as either new or used cores. First we machine the front edge down to a very specific profile that gives enough clearance for the timing chain and guide, yet clears the hood skin.
Next, a laser cut aluminum plate is welded over the cut section, and then ground smooth.
Once this is done, the covers are all hot tanked, stripped of all paint, blasted, and powder coated with a factory Honda wrinkle red or black coating that is attractive and extremely durable. The cover is then thoroughly cleaned again to remove any debris, and the text has the coating ground off to for that distinct OEM Honda look.
